AKI ^ | 2/2/07
Tehran, 2 Feb. (AKI) - Jondallah, the main armed separatist group of Iranian Baluchistan, has claimed responsibility Friday for an attack the previous night in Zahedan, the capital of Iranian Baluchistan, which killed four security officials . "The commando of martyr Ahmad Dehmordeh wanted to remind the regime of the Islamic Republic, which is now celebration its birth (the 28th anniversary of the 1979 revolution) that it is not supported by the people of Baluchistan and it must not feel safe there," the group said in a statement delivered to Adnkronos International (AKI).
Celebrations for the 28th anniversary of the Iranian revolution began on Thursday and will end on 11 February.
Since the Jondallah militant group led by Abdol Malek Righi was set up two years ago, at least 34 people have died in attacks carried out by its members against officials of Iran's Revolutionary Guard, the Pasdaran, and Iranian police.
Tehran claims Righi and his militants are "terrorists hired by foreign powers."
I must be really getting old, I would have sworn that the street protests, strikes anti-Shah gun battles,nightly interruption of electrical power armed Iranian guards in the American housing complex and the departure of the Shah from Iran in 1978 was the start of the revolution.
